The last few days have shown a nice rise in temperatures and with this there is a heightening expectation that trout will be starting to look up a bit more, eager to take those dry fly offerings we will be presenting to them over the coming weeks. The drier weather has lead to a rapid fall in water levels on the River Boyne and surprisingly the water levels on waters controlled by Rossin, Slane and District Anglers on the lower River Boyne are in great condition for the time of year. The clarity of the water is very good but unfortunately fly hatches are sparse at the moment as is consistent trout activity on the surface. One short period yesterday afternoon was the only consistent surface action witnessed during a short session, and it did not last very long.
Angling guide Peter Cunningham was out and about on the Rossin, Slane and District waters yesterday and had some nice wild brown trout fishing on a number of stretches. The trout are fighting fit each fish caught by Peter was carefully returned back to the river. The tranquillity of the setting was only broken occasionally by the splash of an acrobatic salmon moving through the stretch. The only other splashes to be heard were trout being carefully played into Peters landing net.
Trout fishing will improve considerably on the River Boyne over the coming weeks especially as the hatches of Mayfly start to appear. We have the mayfly hatch and the spent fishing to look forward to and there can also be great sedge fishing in the evenings. As the season progresses the blue winged olive can also produce great sport.
